'Already establishing himself as a regular on the South Wales comedy circuit Col is one to watch.' Giggle Geyser, Swansea

'...a really wonderful MC with a real like-ability on stage and a very warm and engaging manner. Excellent!' Hannah Silvester, The Roadhouse, Birmingham.

'...Cardiff-based comic whos 10 minutes were filled with quick stories, sharp lines and an enthusiasm that saw even jokes on the lower rung of his set land. Wed like to see more of Howarths material, hes already built up a great stage approach; plenty of movement and is skilled at knowing where to move on quickly or build it up when it doesn't quite stick.' Chaplins Moustache Comedy, Bristol.

'Howarth was energetic, clever and fun, with perfect comic timing. He told hysterical stories that had the audience smiling from start to end.' Wing It Productions, Bideford.

Radio: I have appeared on Radio Cardiff twice (Justin Evans and Masa Comedia) talking about comedy and my website Stand Up For Comedy.

Style:
My style of comedy is mainly observational and adaptable, in that I often adapt my material for audiences and places, which often makes my material topical and local. I have a surprised, sometimes dark and often jaded view of life, but being a bit of a smiler and having an easy-going, chatty delivery, I can usually get away with it!

My website features interviews from the UK stand-up comedy scene: www.standupforcomedy.co.uk.
